Yes the specs seem to good to be true BUT,
A camera of this magnitude could go as kind of a (how do you say that in english) "stigma"
(not sure if that sounds right, but its certainly the German word for what I meant
I mean, a symbol of the almost ever perfect camera for everybody.Everybody
, except for the few tech-nerds, we are, who are always seeking the newest tec
or professional photographers who might have more specialized needs, like 36MP or 12fps.
Every average user who loves photography, saved up some money and decides to finally buy a really good body that will satisfy his photographic needs in any way, also almost 80% of the professionals who do portrait work - They all can go with this camera.
In a photo-store you can say to almost every buyer who has the 2700$ - "Go for this!", it will do most likely everything you'll want it to do in the next years.
I, as an ambitiously hobby photographer, who loves lowlight, landscape and portrait can say that the 5DII was almost the perfect camera except for 3 points:
It seems these points might have been corrected with the next model and so I think we finally arrived at a point where you can say, that this camera, as it is stated there, can claim the title:"the uncompromising, absolute perfect camera for 80% of all photographers today"
and if you can get that message into the heads of many peoples, they will repeat it for many many years.
